Helping Families With the Full Range of Alabama Family Law Matters
Peeples Law is a full-service divorce and family law firm here to address any of your family law needs. Call Peeples Law in Birmingham for help with any of the following issues:
Growing a family through adoption can be wonderful, but the legal process to adopt can be complex and fraught with uncertainty. Deciding to adopt and committing to the process only to have it fall apart can be heartbreaking. Whether working through an adoption agency, a private adoption arrangement, or stepparent adoption, we provide guidance, support, advice and representation to help the process go smoothly and successfully.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
A prenup helps both parties enter into marriage with their eyes open regarding each other’s finances, debts and expectations regarding the division of property or payment of alimony should the marriage break down. If circumstances change during the marriage, a postnup can accomplish the same purposes of protecting each party’s needs and interests. Settling matters in advance of a split helps the parties make rational decisions that truly meet their needs and are not driven by emotions or spite. If the marriage truly was not meant to be, the parties can part ways without an expensive or drawn-out legal battle that can leave emotional scars or harm the children.
We help parents and grandparents understand their rights and obligations when it comes to their children and grandchildren. We will work cooperatively to arrive at an understanding on visitation that works for everyone where possible. We will also go to court when necessary to protect the best interests of the children/grandchildren, including guardianship, adoption or dependency, as appropriate.
If your child is in trouble with the law, we can help you explore your options and find solutions that meet your family’s needs while ensuring your child is treated fairly by the justice system. Our firm handles paternity actions to ensure children receive financial support and parenting time with both parents as appropriate, as well as dependency proceedings to deal with allegations of child abuse or neglect.
